Fundamentals of Thermodynamics – Borgnakke, Sonntag – 7th Edition

Description

Now in its seventh edition, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics continues to offer a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics, while retaining an engineering perspective. With concise, -oriented discussion of topics and self-test the text encourages students to monitor their own comprehension. The seventh edition is updated with additional examples, homework , and illustrations to increase student understanding.

Borgnakke and ’s Fundamentals of Thermodynamics has long stood as the text of choice for an introduction to the theory and application of thermodynamics. Written from an engineer’s point of view, this updated and revised Seventh Edition of the classic text offers a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics. With concise, applications-oriented discussion of topics and self-test problems, the text encourages students to monitor their own progress and absorb the concepts step by step.

Updated with additional examples, homework problems, and illustrations to increase student understanding, this new edition:

  • Includes concept check questions within chapters
  • Provides more figures, additional examples, and application sections in each chapter
  • Includes a revised version of CATT software for ease of calculating property data
  • Features the ThermoNet Site, with an extensive collection of Internet-based resources in engineering thermodynamics at the college level

Preparing students to effectively apply thermodynamics in the of engineering, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics, Seventh Edition lays the groundwork for subsequent success in such as fluid , heat transfer, and statistical thermodynamics.
